Tea Nguyen February 1, 2011Exploring the neighborhood This past year living in Michigan for rotations has been such a blur. It is very different from Des Moines when I only lived four miles away from school. Now I live at least 10 miles from everything like work and my favorite restaurants.What I’ve found to help me explore my new neighborhood is subscribing to Groupon! The daily deals are a steal and give me a starting point to try new activities and taste new foods in town. I just recently bought 24 yoga classes for $24! I’ve also bought gift certificates for Nordstrom Rack, hair salons and local restaurants. It makes trying new things very appealing!So whether you’re new to Des Moines or in a new town for rotations or residency, give it a shot! If you’re already using it, what was your best Groupon purchase? Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
